Maybelline’s New $7.99 The City Mini Palette

Remember those brilliant Maybelline Eye Studio Color Plush Silk Eyeshadow Palettes? They appear to be back as this new Maybelline the City Mini Palette looks quite like the same soft, silky formula as the old Plush Silk ones. All I can say is, if they are, sign me up because I used to LOVE those palettes!

In past post, I’ve compared the formula on the Plush Silk Eyeshadow Quads to Japanese Eyeshadows which you likely no I’m obsessed with since I’m a fond fan of Asian beauty everything. They are also quite like the new Covergirl Tru Naked Eyeshadow Palettes. I’m just judging my opinion of the City Mini Palettes by eyeballing them alone from promo pictures but things are looking mighty promising from these images.

Here’s a look!

If you’re familiar with the Too Faced The Return of Sexy Palette these look a lot like the formula in the palette. I realize not everyone is a fond fan of this formula but I happen to adore it.

Maybelline has the City Mini Eyeshadow Palettes available in six shade selections each of which holds six eyeshadows each. These are available for a $7.99 each at right now. I’ll definitely be picking up a few.

Anyone see them yet?

Do you think you’ll snag a few?

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    I see a couple that I might have to snag… You might try looking at Target. I was there over the weekend and they had the new glossy liquid lipsticks that I haven’t seen anywhere else (they’re called Vivid something or other).

    Might have to snag some if they make their way over here! Ironically, I don’t like Maybelline’s more “Western” formulas like their nude palettes, but I do like their releases that are targeted for the Japanese market. They do great shimmers and metallics for their Asian stuff.

    I really like the range of shades that Maybelline have put together for their mini palettes. Hopefully they have included a matte somewhere in them. As a rule, I am not a fan of ‘drugstore’ eyeshadows (apart from that sensational L’Oreal Infalliable range from quite awhile ago now), but these might be pretty good.

    These look gorgeous! I definitely want to check them out at Walgreens. I hope they are pigmented!
